A businessman in the Northern Marianas has admitted involvement in a large-scale birth tourism business on Saipan.
Richard Peng reached a plea agreement with the prosecution and told them his former business partner had made his property on the island available specifically to house pregnant Chinese women.
He said the business partner even had a price list.
Peng also admitted that on one occasion he received $US,7352 dollars for allowing a pregnant Chinese woman to live at his property.
He was charged in federal court with one count of harboring illegal aliens.
The offence carries a maximum penalty of five years jail.
